What interested you in becoming a teacher?

I love history and I knew I wanted to make a difference in students lives. 

What subject(s) are you interested in teaching?

Social Studies.

Where did you attend high school, and do you view education differently now than you did when you were a student?

Crestwood; I view education differently now than when I was a student because I view it more as a necessity for all. Every person has the right to a good education.

Is teaching what you expected it to be?

No, it is so much more! Being a teacher is so rewarding and all the hard work is worth it.

Has anyone in your life (teachers, family, friends) inspired you to become a teacher, or did you push yourself towards it?

Honestly, I was originally a music major and no one imagined me changing. I pushed myself to become a teacher because I knew I wanted to work with children.

Who are you a student-teacher for? Do you like their teaching methods?

Mr. Litchkofski, I believe he is a very good teacher. I am learning so much from him.
